A series of workshops and drop-in sessions are taking place over the coming months to give local businesses the chance to find out how to maximise their digital potential.

These sessions are a continuation of Enterprise Mendip's successful GROW with Digital programme, which was run earlier this year.

The programme consists of a series of in-depth digital marketing workshops complemented by a new pilot series of drop-in sessions. Each session will have a different theme and features an expert in their field offering free, professional business advice on an informal, 1-2-1 or group basis.  The initiative aims to educate business owners, whilst creating a network of business support and growth in the area.

Upcoming sessions include:

  • 2 November, 9:30am - 'Build your Business with Blogging' workshop (Wells)

  • 9 November, 5pm - 'Business IT anything' drop in (Wells)

  • 21 November, 4pm - 'Xero & Cloud bookkeeping apps' drop in (Shepton)

The first session took place on Thursday 12 October and was well attended with excellent feedback from Shirley Offer, Springmead Prep School, who described the sessions as "practical, inspiring and incredibly helpful".

Cllr Tom Killen, Portfolio Holder for Economic Development and Deputy Leader of the Council, said: "The free drop-in sessions and workshops are a fantastic way for businesses in Mendip to make sure they keep up to date with the latest digital developments, from marketing and branding to blogging and automation.

"The Grow with Digital sessions held earlier this year proved very popular and if these new sessions are equally well attended, the programme will continue throughout 2018 and will be rolled out across the district."

Sessions are open to Mendip-based businesses and the next session can be booked via: Booking is strongly advised due to limited spaces.
